Once again, Dr. Veihdeffer will provide dental screenings for decay at all schools in the City of Erie, including private schools. These screenings are provided to students in Pre-K, K, 3rd grade, and 7th grade.
Dr. Veihdeffer has accepted a part time position at LECOM as a preceptor for the dental outreach clinic. He spends one half day a week at the clinic. In January, LECOM will send Dr. Veihdeffer to their Florida clinic to test their students with mock boards.
Dr. Veihdeffer is scheduled as an examiner for state licensure exams at Midwestern University Dental School in Phoenix, Arizona. Students taking this exam are members of the first graduating class! He will also be an examiner at Boston University.
The adult dentition consists of 32 teeth. This includes (four) third molars a.k.a. wisdom teeth. It is common to have the 3rd molars extracted leaving the adult compliment to be 28 teeth. All 3 of Dr Bill’s daughters had their wisdom teeth removed. When signing emails to his daughters when they were away at college, Dr. Bill concluded with “keep your 28 clean” to remind them to brush their teeth. =)
